Course Description:
The Coarse Aggregate (CA) Level 2 Testing Technician's Certification Course is intended to assure competency in physical property testing of course aggregate materials.  Individuals who complete the course will be re-certified to perform CA Level 2 Testing Technician duties for aggregate materials produced for use on SCDOT projects.  The re-certification course includes a general overview as well as a review of all specification and procedural changes that may have occurred.  The instructors for the course are made up of knowledgeable aggregate industry and SCDOT representatives.

Course Outline:
To become re-certified, participants are required to attend a one-and-a-half (1 ½) day course, pass a written exam (open book and open notes) with a score of 80% or higher, and individually demonstrate proficiency (closed book and closed notes) in each of the following required laboratory testing procedures:

  • Specific Gravity and Absorption of Coarse Aggregate (AASHTO T 85)
  • Resistance to Degradation of Small-Size Coarse Aggregate by Abrasion and Impact in the Los Angeles Machine (AASHTO T 96)
  • Plastic Fines in Graded Aggregate and Soils by Use of the Sand Equivalent Test (AASHTO T 176)
  • Method for Determining Flat and Elongated Particles in Coarse Aggregate (SC T 77)

Upon registration AND payment for the course, each participant will be sent a course manual. 

Topics covered in the course include:

  •  Important Properties of Aggregates
  • Flat and Elongated Particles
  • Los Angeles Abrasion
  • Sodium Sulfate Soundness
  •  Absorption and Specific Gravity
  • Sand Equivalency

Entry Requirements/What to Expect
Prerequisites:

  • Current Coarse Aggregate Level 1 Sampling and Grading Technician Certification 
  • Current Coarse Aggregate Level 2 Sampling and Grading Technician Certification 

Additional Registration Information:
If registration information and payment for the course are not received at least 14 days prior to the course start date, the participant will not receive a course manual and will be dropped from the course. If the registrant provides an incorrect mailing address and the manual has to be re-shipped, a $10.00 processing and handling fee will be charged. 

Frequency of Re-certification:
The certification period is five years. An individual will be informed, by way of a letter mailed to the technician's last address of record, when the certification period is nearing the expiration date. If the technician was last registered for certification by his/her employer, the last address of record may be the employer's address. However, it is the responsibility of the individual to keep Tri-County Technical College and the Technician Certification Board advised of his/her current address. The individual is also responsible for registering for the re-certification course, attending the re-certification course, passing the written exam with a score of 80% or higher, and individually demonstrating proficiency in the four required testing procedures.
